Visual Studio 6.0 C++ "One or more files are out of date or do not exist" message.

Hi experts,

I have an MFC application that displays the message "One or more files are out of date or do not exists.  These files need to be built.... Would you like to build them?" when I run the application in Visual Studio environment.  I know the file Visual Studio complains about is really missing and that when I put this file in, the message is no longer displayed.  However, if I run the application outside of Visual Studio by double clicking on the executable, the message is not displayed even though the file is missing.  My question is "What files does Visual Studio use to dertermine this file is missing?"  I would like to make the change so that the message is no longer shown when I run the application inside Visual Studio.

Thanks for your help.
